Alright to start before you read this read what I have to say. This article is about extreme body mods. For those who do not know, thats things like, splitting your tongue(ala lizardman), splitting your penis, willing amputations, becoming a willing eunich, and various other such modifications. The Mod in question is Female Circumcision. Now I don't expect ANY of you to understand why someone would want these things, I think most of them are INSANE(no one is going near my balls with a scalpel) but I know that my self image includes tattoos, I love them and want many more, and I can only think that these peoples self images involve piercings, and sometimes less body parts, thinking about it that way I try to respect it, note I used the word RESPECT. Alright now about FC(female circumcision), you will generally hear of it as FGM, Female Genital Mutilation. Surprising that the people against it choose to use the term mutilation rather than circumcision, huh? Now I hope you can read this and actually learn about FC, I had only known it as some thing backwards people in foreign countries did. I realize now I was only given the information by people AGAINST FC and thats why I knew it to be that. I never heard of the other side of the argument. Did you know the people that advocate it in those backwards places point out that it hightens a woman's sexual pleasure and they say this leads to less adultery since she is being satisfied at home. That makes a lot of sense in my book, a happy bedroom can really help a happy homelife(anyone knows that much). What I had always heard of was the clitoris being fully removed. Turns out this is a mistake and isn't suppossed to happen. But when you have everyone around you saying it shouldn't be done and refusing proper medical aid in doing the procedure, well would you trust your best friend to do the circumcision on your penis??? Now I do agree that FC is wrong to do on young girls(as it often is), but think about this, I am 19 and circumcised, I never agreed to be circumcised. My parents made that choice when I was born. If you say its wrong for parents to decide a girl should be circumcised how is it alright for a guy? With all that said go ahead and read the article. If you even want to bother after reading my stuff that probably made you sick or something. If you have read this far, here is the link. The article is about a private modifier who performs both male and female circumcisions(among other extreme mods) on people in a clean, as professional enviroment as you will get without a doctor doing it(as all extreme mods should be done by in my opinion). Anyway, he does them on willing over 18 people with great success and happiness. Now the FBI heard this and came along looking to take him down anyway they could. They created a fabricated story(entrapment?) of a family that was entirely pro-circumcision, with 2 minor daughters that everyone involved wanted the FC to occur. Well the people never existed and suppossedly the guy agreed to do the procedure(which is illegal seeing as they are minors). I can't locate the laws, but as far as I can tell in the US FC is illegal even with full parental consent. Which by the way the FBI as these kids parents gave full consent. Now no one ever met about this, the guy never started searching these people out to do the work. The FBI stopped there and arrested him. They then locked him and his girlfriend/assistant up for 6 months in solitary confinement. They then came to him with charges of “manufacturing of child pornography”. How did they come up with that? They went through his personal photo albums and found a picture of his young daughter without a top on.... Parents out there, who doesn't have one of these? I see little girls running around neighborhoods with their tops off all the time. They are little kids who cares? THe reason he chose to take that charge was this, they showed him his own bloody pictures of the work he had done previouslly and said simply(paraphrasing), "do you think a jury could ever be sympathetic to you?". Now all that said, if he did agree to do that job on minors, I agree he messed up and did something wrong. BUt at the sametime the FBI created it all, they also created the charges he is now facing and basically told him he couldn't get a fair trial. I'd like to hear some opinions from folks out there who aren't like me and a little less understanding of these things.
